      HEY Melita,
      Lovely to see you here. Yes, these CHANEL Insider videos are so inspiring for me. Though in many ways a terrible woman creatively she was amazing. And what they have continued through her legacy is even more astounding.

    I don’t know how you find all these lovely, artistic videos about the how and why of the creative process. But I love watching every one of them. Thank you!

      Hey Tatiana,
      I am so glad you enjoy them.
      A friend may send or they appear in the sidelines of other stuff I’m watching on YouTube. It is a VERY dangerous time waste though. Sometimes a friend sends me something and two hours later I’m still glued to the computer screen.
      Thanks for leaving a note, it lifted my already excellent day.

        I have no idea what you’re talking about. I’ve never, ever been glued to my computer screen for two hours. 😉
        Four or five hours, yes, but just two…? 😀

    Portia, I have a book about Chanel supposedly being a Nazi spy. Haven’t read it yet, but found it too intriguing to *not* buy…

    • australianperfumejunkies says:

      There are a lot of stories about her at that time. She was definitely anti semetic and it would not surprise me if she colluded with the Nazis. The French often try to play down their role in WWII but they were Nazi, the Paris Police force was used to round up all the Jews & gays and they went to a sporting arena till they were trained to the CCs. What a woeful chapter in human history,
      Putin and his country take overs and anti-gay propaganda feels like we all need to buckle our belts for another round
